Description:Very Good. 8vo. 720p. Disbound. Good binding. Stamp of Library...Very Good. 8vo. 720p. Disbound. Good binding. Stamp of Library of Congress on FEP. Clean, unmarked pages with minimal toning. Contents of the 1st Session of the 36th Congress are the passing of the Morrill Bill, a bill that subsequently raised high revenue for the federal government in the Civil War. The high rates of the Morrill tariff inaugurated a period of continuous trade protection in the United States, a policy that remained until the adoption of the Revenue Act of 1913. Also in this volume is the Covode Committee, the committee formed to look into allegations of corruption of the Buchanan presidency and see if there were grounds for impeachment. Although the committee was dissolved and there were no grounds for impeachment, the Republicans took the issues and reports as a major campaign point in the 1860 election. The State of Union address by Buchanan delivers remarks on the Bleeding Kansas massacres and slavery stating, "I shall not refer to the recent sad and bloody occurrences at Harper's Ferry. Still, it is proper to observe that these events, however bad and cruel in themselves, derive their chief importance from the apprehension that they are but symptoms of an incurable disease in the public mind, which may break out in still more dangerous outrages, and terminate, at last, in an open war by the North to abolish slavery in the South." Mentioned also is the Crabb Massacre, Slaver Wildfire and Pacific RR to protect California and Oregon.
